Hose Testing


Tuesday and Thursday had “A” shift testing fire hose. Tuesday we tested 7000′ of supply hose that is kept on our five engines and two ladder trucks. Thursday was our day to test hand lines, which are kept on all the apparatus with over 15,000′. Over 100 man-hours were spent ensuring the hose will not fail during fire suppression activities that we respond to over the next year. The hose testing must be completed every year for the benefit of our community. By testing our hose this helps with our Insurance Service Office (ISO) rating in the Hanover and Penn Township communities. By keeping our ISO rating low this helps to keep your fire insurances premiums lower.
